san diego trip

29 Mar

Getting excited… we are going on our first family vacation in over 2 years in July. Mike is doing the San Diego Comicon (his 4th year) and we decided to make a meal of it. We rented a beach house to stay in with our other friends who do Comicon. Hondo & I will be soakin’ up the rays while everyone else are busting their humps at the ‘con.

After San Diego we are going to drive back up the coast, our first stop: Big Sur’s Ripplewood Resort. These super cute cabins aren’t even close to roughing it, they have bathrooms & kitchens and they have great reviews on tripadvisor.

Then we are getting a little more rustic, staying in the Forest Glen Guard Station. It was constructed in 1916 and was a residence for Forest Service Fire Patrolmen. It has no heat, no running water but it has a flushing toilet (I’ll explain how that works in August…) The best part? $40 a night.

Speaking of $40 a night… our last stop is a rustic yurt at the Bullards Beach State Park on the Oregon Coast. I am so excited, I LOVE yurts. And the Oregon Coast.

    How was the Forest Glen Guard Station? We’re looking at renting it this summer and trying to find more information about it and what’s around it.

      Hi! Sorry, I wrote this so long ago (2011) that it may have changed… But if it still is like it was I would NOT recommend it! The scenery was beautiful but the cabin was so full of bugs we probably only slept 2 hours. The crane flies were as big as my palm and I was literally picking beetles off of myself!
